Averager and Peak Hold/Extender Signal Conditioner

A signal averager circuit can be formed by an amplifier and active signal rectifier, which is implemented using two operational amplifiers in this circuit. The first op-amp is configured as inverting amplifier and the second forms an active half-wave rectifier. The half cycle signal is then filtered by an RC (resistor-capacitor) filter to get the average value. The gain of […]

Flash-Triggered Pulse Stretcher Using Classic Monostable Circuit

This is a flash triggered (photo-driven) circuit which produce a pulse with constant predetermined wide. This circuit can be used to control any device which is required to be synchronized with optical trigger/flash light.  The pulse can be used to drive relay (after proper power buffering,  to drive other circuit logic, or electronic switch.  We call it a pulse stretcher […]

Simple IR Remote Tester

Most cases of infra-red remote control failure can be detected by detecting the absence of the pulsed transmitted infra red light. It’s very rare that the remote control fail while it is still capable of transmitting the infrared pulse.  This condition enable such a very simple tester is easy to build. A simple infrared detector with ac coupling and simple […]

Solid-State (555 IC) Stroboscope

Stroboscope is used to measure the speed of rotation, using the effect of strobed light, where a moving object will be perceived as stationary object if the light is strobed fast enough relative to the movement speed. When applied to a rotating object, a mark on the object will be perceived as not rotating if the frequency of the strobed […]
